Loser, Nerd, Geek, Fatso.... Would you believe that these are just a few of the 
words that some people hear every day walking into a high school? What people don 1 
realize is that with every action there is an equal if not greater reaction. We learned tr 
when the series of events happened at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. 
When the events took place at Columbine, the media as well as many others had a fie | 
day placing blame on anything from movies to music to grandparents and parents. 
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that these don't have something to do with it. Ar 
I am not saying these things don't have a certain effect on people. What I am 
saying, however, is that one aspect they didn't look at is the school system. School 
officials in particular. All I have to say to school officials is... WAKE UP! Do you 
honestly think telling a student to turn the other cheek is going to make the bullying 
stop? 

Now granted, it is a high school and there are going to be people who don't like 
other people, and people are going to get called names. But when you sit back and d 
nothing to the ones calling the names, or tell the ones getting bullied to ignore them, 
is partly your fault as well. Am I condoning the actions of students who take matters 
into their own hands? No. Violence is not the answer, and pulling a gun on someone 
certainly not the answer, but having been bullied myself I fully understand where the 
kids are coming from. Will this article stop what bullying goes on? Probably not! It 
doesn't reach that many people. But if it will stop even one person from saying a hate 
ful word to someone else, then my job is done. 

A lot of people don't choose how they look or where they come from. So who is 
anyone to say they are better than someone else, or who is anyone to put someone 
down for the situation they are in? The next time you get ready to pop off a comment 
to someone, ask yourself if you have any reason to put this person down or if you are 
just doing it for your own pleasure. Either way, you don't know what the consequenc 
of your actions and hateful words might bring. So, basically, think long and hard bef< 
you speak.

or many of us, the right to vote 
or a chance at equal pay has been some- 
thing we have taken for granted. What 
many of you do not know is that women 
have only had the right to vote and make 
everyday decisions since the early 1920s. 
According to the Feminist Majority 
Leadership Alliance (FMLA) pamphlet, 
this group "was created to develop bold, 
new strategies and programs to advance 
women's equality, non-violence, econom- 
ic development, and, most importantly, 
empowerment of women and girls in all 
sectors of society." All programs of the 
Feminist Majority Foundation or the FMF 
(the main organization out of Washington 
D.C. that oversees the FMLA) "endeavor 
to include a global perspective and activi- 
ties to promote leadership development, 
especially among young women," accord- 
ing to the pamphlet. 

any people jump to the assump- 
tion when they hear the word feminist 
that it is a bra burning male bashing ses- 
sion but that is not the case," says Heidi 
Hulse, co-advisor of the FMLA chapter 
on campus. The Alliance encourages any 
and all males to join. Hulse says, "We 
would love to have men join, young, old, 
women, men. It gives the group more per- 
spective." Men actually inquired about 
the group and joining more than women 
during the spring when the information 
booth was set up in the 1500 building, 
according to the organizers. Sonja 
Milbourn, head advisor of the FMLA at 
Butler says, "It's a women's group with 
men stirred in." In a nationally known 



group such as this, Milbourn says, 
"You need to work with coalition build- 
ing. That is the key to success of 
change. You're not working against 
peoole, you are working for them." 



et's start at the beginning by 
looking at when and 
where the group got 
started. Sonja 
Milbourn, Heidi Hulse, 
Ramona Becker and 
Diane Wahto began 
meeting every 
Wednesday for lunch to 
discuss and plan how 
to get the FMLA start- 
ed. Milbourn says, 
"The issue of choice 
and reproductive 
choice and concerns 
that I had about the 
government deciding 
whether I had those rights trou- 
bled me for quite some time." 
After about two years of this, 
Milbourn finally said, "I'm tired 
of talking about it; if we are 
going to do it, let's do it." And 
that was when the FMLA at 
Butler took shape. This is the 
first feminist group on Butler's 
campus, according to Milbourn. 
Jamie Keen, El Dorado fresh- 
man, says, " I was interested in 
political activism and raising 
awareness of issues, and this 
group stood for many things that 
I believe in, and I wanted to get 
the word out."

However, not everyone shares the 
views of this organization. 



A 



ording to the FMLA organiz- 
ers, the arrival of this group is considered 
a benefit to the campus. Not only does it 
raise awareness of political and personal 
issues, it is intended to also give men and 
women a chance to unite and uphold equal 
rights, according to the organizers.

What has three letters, and can bring over 
500 students from approximately 90 differ- 
ent countries with a variety of languages and 
religions together? Here are a couple clues: 
one, it's not a great tragedy and two, it can 
be found on both Butler of El Dorado and 
Andover campuses. 

Give up? It is the ISA, or International 
Student Association. The ISA has been on 
campus for at 

least 15 years u \ ^| 

according to 
Paul Kyle, 
Director of 
Enrollment 
Management. 

Currently, 
many people are = 
unaware of such 

an organization, and the participation level is 
low. Amanda Woroch, a United Kingdom 
sophomore, was the president of the ISA in 
2001-2002 and states the low participation 
level is a concern. However, the ISA is also 
in a reorganization process now; new offi- 
cers are scheduled to be elected in March. 

The ISA's main focus is helping interna- 
tional students cope with the American cul- 
ture and acts as a support network for them. 
For some students, the American culture is 
so different for them that this creates a reac- 
tion known as a "culture shock." The ISA 
helps the student cope with the changes 



"It's a support 

network." 

-Amanda Woroch, ISA 

President, 2001-2002 



through a variety of social functions such 
as picnics and monthly meetings. 

One of the major events held by the 
ISA is the International Expo, which takes 
place in April on the Butler of Andover 
campus. For the Expo, international stu- 
dents from the variety of countries are 
encouraged to display a booth that explains 
their home countries and cultures by use of 

music, clothing, lan- 
guage, games and vari- 
ous other items. The 
Expo is presented for 
elementary school stu- 
dents in Butler County 
as well as BCCC stu- 
dents and staff. It helps 
_Jo open American stu- 
"dents' eyes to the world 
and the variety of cul- 
tures that are represented. 

During the Expo, the students' booths 
are judged by BCCC administrators and by 
the elementary children. Prizes are award- 
ed to the winners in a variety of categories. 

Anyone can join the ISA; there is no 
cost involved. All international students are 
automatically members of the International 
Student Association when they choose to 
attend Butler. American students are also 
encouraged to join, if they have an interest 
in other cultures. Most of the meetings are 
listed in the student agenda and usually are

Staying active is a key to sood health

eventy-five percent of Americans are inactive and live a 
sedentary lifestyle. This surprising statistic comes from The 
Wellness Concepts and Applications, a textbook used in the 
Lifetime Fitness classes offered at Butler. The American 
Physiological Society provides information on inactivity-related 
chronic diseases. According to their website, the Centers for 
Disease Control links lack of activity with obesity, type II dia- 
betes, cardiovascular disease, strokes, certain cancers, high blood 
pressure and osteoporosis. According to their studies, at least 
250,000 people die from inactivity-related causes every year. 
Still need to be motivated to be active? 

Along with the down side of being inactive; there are major 
benefits of staying active. 



Story and Photos by Kristin Sunlev 



Major Benefits of Staying Active 

• Promotes a sense of well-being and self- 
confidence 

• Regular exercise helps people maintain a posi- 
tive mood and avoid depression 

• Improves sleep 

• Reduces stress 

• Increases energy 

• Strengthens lungs and heart 

• Promotes flexibility 

• Maintains strength of muscles 

• Strengthens bones 

• Lowers blood pressure and heart rate 

• Helps you maintain a healthy weight 

By making exercise a part of your lifestyle, 
you will receive health benefits that last the rest of 
your life. To burn fat calories you have to have 
oxygen. Aerobic activity is working out with oxy- 
gen. It places added demands on your muscles, 
heart and lungs. 

Common forms of aerobic activity 

• Walking • Dancing 

• Swimming • Jogging 

• Bicycling • Exercise machines 



Three rules for the "best" activity: 



1. Something that uses big muscles 

2. You can still talk while doing it 

3. Make it last for minimum of 15 minutes

What's the point? 

OPiMOiv er MATI HAH* 

The government is corrupt, the environment is polluted and most young adults stand on the sidelines and do 
nothing. I have come to show you that you have a choice. Now, don't go running in the street shouting for 
revolution. I'm not one of those stereotypical anarchists. I am, however, a concerned American. With every- 
thing that's going on, I think it's time we asked some questions. 



We have hundreds of laws and rules to protect us 
from ourselves, but what rules do we have to protect 
us from our leaders? 

They give themselves raises while our social secu 
rity is dwindling fast. 

What about protecting the oil reserves while our 
environment crumbles around us? Come on guys, 
environmentally friendly cars 
are already being made, but 
there are only a handful here 
in America. 

The list of problems goes 
on and on, but what can we do 
about it? 

There has been a disturbing 
trend growing in the last few 
years. A trend that under- 
mines the basic view of 
America by allowing people to give up their choices. 
I've heard plenty of people say "Hey, it's 
America... it's their choice," but what those people 
have to realize is that when the laws are made, they 
will have no room to talk. 

Our senators, representatives, and President are 
supposed to make decisions based on the statistics at 
the polls. What are they supposed to think when no 
one shows up to vote? You can complain about the 
way things are until you're blue in the face, but no 
one will hear you until you take some initiative. 

Current studies show the majority of people who 
vote are the individuals who have more responsibili- 

JS. 




"The characteristics of people who are most likely to 
go to the polls are a reflection of both the racial/ethnic 
composition of the citizen population and the attributes 
of people with the biggest stakes in society: older indi- 
viduals, homeowners, married couples, and people with 
more schooling, higher incomes, and good jobs," say 
studies posted at the Census Bureau's website at 

www.census.gov 

A graph from the website shows 
most voters are people in their senior 
years. Believe it or not, one of these 
days you are going to be in that 
group. 

What can you do to make an 
informed decision? 

There are quite a few groups that 
are aimed at informing young adults 
about the importance of voting. One organization has 
helped to raise awareness among young voters by using 
recording artists and the media. In its first four years, 
M tv 's Rock the Vote has helped over 250,000 young 
people get registered to vote. In turn, voting among 
young people has risen over 1 3 percent. 

So what kind of advice does Rock the Vote give to 
young voters?

Sad Statistics. 

The generation that 
has the most energy 
doesn't seem to have 
enough time to get to 
the polls. Of all the 
voters, this group 
comes in last. 
Statistics seem to 
show that young 
Americans don't care 
what happens to 
America. 



M tv 's Rock The Vote says: 

Get educated. Educate yourself so that you can 
educate others. 

Ask questions. Seek answers. Know the way 
things are so you can influence the way they can be. 

Listen to others, to what they're saying — and what 
they're not. 

Read the paper. Get on the mailing lists (on-line 
or off) of organizations you're interested in to learn 
more about the issues that concern you and the 
actions you can take. 

Watch your world. Check out how your elected 
officials vote on the issues you care about. Go to 
community meetings, and attend city council and 
school board sessions. Don't wait to be asked. You're 
invited. 

You can get information on what our elected lead- 
ers are up to by checking out Project Vote Smart at 
http://www.vote-smart.org. 

Or, if there's an election coming up in your part of 
the country, educate yourself on the key issues and 
players by visiting the League of Women Voters 
"Smart Voter." 



Did you know? 

According to rockthevote.com 

Three out of 10 Americans breathe unhealthy 
air even though the Clean Air Act was passed 
more than 20 years ago. 

20 percent of community drinking water sys- 
tems get their drinking water from facilities 
that violate public health safety requirements. 

10 million children under the age of 12 live 
within 4 miles of a toxic waste dump site. 

80 percent of all cancer is caused by environ- 
mental influences. 

The U.S. government's slated budget for 
2004 will spend $308.5 billion on the 
Pentagon and only $34.7 billion on educa- 
tion. 

20 percent of adults read at or below fifth 
grade level. 

78 percent of high school students report that 
drugs are used, sold or kept at their schools.

Take time to treat yourself, and maybe your friend, by taking a 
vacation for spring break. Just think, having the time off work to 
go and have fun. How about going skiing for a couple of days, 
maybe Keystone or Breckinridge? But think about having to pay 
for it and getting the right price. Checking the prices is the fun 
part. Where do you start, though? You can call a travel agency or, 
if you want to go skiing, there are also other places you can call. 
Here in El Dorado there are Dave's Big Adventures and Free & 
Easy Travel, or in Wichita there are two big stores, The Slope and 
also Adventure Sports, 

Now we must think it can be long enough to have fun on a trip 
that we can afford. By calling around Wichita and El Dorado we 
found four prices for a trip to Summit County, some good, some 
bad. But when calling around, you have to know what to ask for. 
You must know how to get there and where to stay. Most of all, 
you must have skis or a snowboard. Don't forget a way onto the 
mountains- most important is a lift ticket. 

Hope that you found out more and maybe think of taking a 
vacation. The trips start in late November and continue to the 
beginning of April. It's a fun experience, I suggest it, so get 
friends and family together and make it a trip

The f$$p Never Falls Far From the 

The Forrest Family 



HS 




Story and Photos by N/|ich<f LLs Avis 



Science just comes naturally to Butler instructors 
Bill Forrest and his daughter Susan Forrest. 

Science, to me, is just part of my inner nature. 
I'm curious about all things," says Bill Forrest. By 
fourth grade, he had been introduced to science fic- 
tion in comic books and other media. "I got really 
interested in science by some of the fantastic things 
that they were doing [in science fiction], some of 
which are actually possible now. . . I wanted to find 
out more about the things they were talking about, 
and so I started getting into science and taking all the 
science courses I could, and reading science books in 
addition to fiction." 



,^p^^ ' ^^^^ 




He first studied astronomy, then discovered that 
physics was "the key to all sciences... If you under- 
stand physics you can get into just about whatever 
you want to," says Bill Forrest. He suggests that stu- 
dents who have the appropriate background in math, 
as college algebra classes, take physics to help 
them understand important concepts in other sci- 
ences. 

He became interested in teaching while on a grad- 
uate school assistantship at Pittsburgh because he 
enjoyed helping the students. "I decided that I want- 
ed to teach in college; and I wanted to teach, I didn't 
want to do research. A community college offers the 
•pportunity for pure teaching at the college 



While his children were growing up, the entire 
family attended meetings of the American 
Association of Physics Teachers. Some of these con- 
ventions had family activities and physics demonstra- 
tions that gave his daughter, Susan Forrest, an interest 
in science at a young age. The conventions provided 
kind of a heads-up on science, and Susan Forrest 
says, "I don't know if I just naturally enjoyed it or if it 
was because [Bill Forrest] was a physics teacher. 
Growing up with him was just like being in school." 

Continuing to feed her love of learning, she began 
taking college courses at Butler. Her father taught 
physical sciences, and she originally majored in phys- 
ical science. She eventually spoke with her father 
about working at Butler. Bill Forrest says, "She came

wanted to get a job. So I talked to my buddy in biolo-

darned if he didn't convert her into a biologist!"

biology was not all dissecting cats and rats and pigs, 
and that kind of thing... We went to a cancer biology

workshop at K-State, and I just got really jazzed 
about the whole idea of molecular and cellular biolo- 
gy and that there was this whole other world out 
there." 

When she left Butler, she had the basic prerequi- 
sites for biology, chemistry and physics. She consid- 
ered meteorology as her father had, but by gradua- 
tion, she had decided that teaching was where she 
wanted to be. "I always said that I wouldn't be a 
teacher and then when I got into college I realized 
that I really enjoyed working with people... I realized 
that teaching, after working with the students and 
being a tutor for them, was really one of my gifts and 
I really enjoyed it, and I thought that was what I'd like 
to do for the rest of my life." Another influence was 
the Challenger explosion, which she said "kind of 
inspired me to go out and not do something in my 
field but to teach others, and that way I can do more 
good because I can help other people reach their 
goals and their dreams." 




Now it was only a question of what level and what 
to teach. "I went up to K-State and entered their edu- 
cation program and then taught for a couple of years 
after I got out of school. Then I realized that I wanted 
to be back at the community college level because 
what I enjoyed the most was the community college 
setting; and I went back and got my degree," Susan 
Forrest says. 

Still not totally settled on one branch of science, 
she taught physics, chemistry and biology at high 
school; and physical science and life science at the 
middle school level before coming to Butler. For 
someone with such broad interests, she says, "the best 
thing for you to do is teach because you can see how 
it all connects, and make those connections for your 
students." 

After teaching at Andover in a summer adjunct 
position, she says, "I was so excited when I finished 
teaching those classes. I just enjoyed it so much more 
and realized that I had to go back and get my master's 



[degree] because that was right, at the community 
college level." 

Accepting a full-time teaching position at Allen 
County Community College, she became involved 
with the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) honor society. "I had 
so much fun with it and saw how good PTK can be 
for people and how it can strengthen their experience 
at the community college level, encouraging them to 
do more than just get A's in the class. To go be- 
yond what the expectations are in the class that 
they're taking and really learn leadership skills, and 
be a part of community service and giving back to the 
community." 

When a full-time position became available at 
Butler, Forrest gladly accepted it. Happy about her 
return, she says, "It just goes to show you never ever 
really leave Butler; it's always with you." 

Although Butler's chapter of PTK already had 
John Jenkinson as a sponsor, Forrest volunteered any- 
way. She felt strongly about the benefits PTK offered 
students; not just the scholarships offered, but the 
ability to build resumes, the fellowship and friend- 
ships people build in PTK. 

Bill Forrest says, "I'm proud of her, she's done a 
lot of good things, is really involved in school activi- 
ties and loves her students." 

Students interested in learning more about Phi 
Theta Kappa are encouraged to contact Susan Forrest, 
or check Pipeline@Butler for upcoming PTK events.

1 ashion is a way to express 
who a person is. And it is a form 
of free speech. What we wear 
and how we wear it gives others 
an opportunity to read the sur- 
face on the outside in social situ- 
ations. 

It is a nonverbal communica- 
tion to indicate occupation, rank, 
gender, availability, locality, 
class, wealth and group affilia- 
tion. It gives us a sense of indi- 
viduality, according to fashion- 
era.com. 

When walking through the 
Butler campus, students' 
individualities become apparent. 
On colder days, "hoodies," 
"beanies" and sweat outfits are 
commonly seen. 

When walking into the West 
Dorms, you may be flashed with 
a smile as good as gold. 



Gold teeth are popular with 
some of the boys on the Butler 
campus. 

"In the South, having gold teeth 
means that you have money," 
Clarence Repress, 21, sophomore, 
says. 

Also just as popular is the 
"bling, bling" jewelry that they 
wear, such as big silver crosses and 
big diamond earrings. You may alsc 
see them sporting a doo rag on 
their heads. 

A very common cool look for 
hair around Butler is braids. This 
look is for both the girls and guys. 

"I wear braids because they are 
unique," Fletcher Terrell, 18, soph- 
omore, says.

tattoo and pierced navel, to the

reveal our individual identities. 
It enables us to make ourselves 
understood by others with just a 
simple glance. 

Other fads popular at Butler 
are body art. Many students at 
Butler have at least one type of 
piercing or a tattoo. The most 
common earrings you'll see are 
hoops and diamonds. 

Then there are barbells for 
tongue rings, belly rings and 
eyebrow piercings. For nose 
rings, the most common rings 
are little studs. 

More recently, students have 
been getting their chins or lips 
pierced. 

Now it's time to talk about 
the girls. Girls express them- 
selves in many ways, with 
makeup, hair coloring, nails, 
jewelry, shoes, and, of course, 
the clothes. 



There are many different 
fashion items that make up a 
girl's outfit. Tie belts, peasant 
tops, hip hugger jeans and 
brown and black high heeled 
boots are just some of the things 
seen around campus. 

A lot of girls who attend 
Butler are involved in a sport or 
take some kind of dance class. 
Those girls are often seen in 
their sporty or scrubbish outfits, 
but still pull it off to look good. 

Fashion really isn't about 
what you wear, but how you 
wear it. The most important 
thing is to do your own thing 
and be satisfied in yourself. 

Something that's been said 
that has always stuck with me is 
this, "Never compare yourself to 
others because you will NEVER 
win." Stay true to yourself!

Crime on Campus and 
Those Who Protect Us 

At every location that has thousands of people and 
thousands of dollars of equipment, security is needed. 

"I think the security is pretty good. Each individ- 
ual should take responsibility for their own safety," 
says Marvin Dodson, Director of Facilities 
Management. Dodson has served in this position for 
four years. 

Dodson says that Butler doesn't have as much of a 
problem with crime as some other colleges do, 
because of its location outside of a metro area. 

Unlike some other schools, Butler security guards 
do not carry weapons or restraints. Dodson explains, 
"There hasn't been an incident where we needed that. 
I can't think of any incident where we needed a 
weapon." 

However, if things do get out of security's control, 
they call the El Dorado Police. Even Dodson says that 
may take two or three minutes, and a lot can happen 
in that time. 

Despite the hard work put forth by the security 
guards, crimes on campus still occur. 

In late October of last year, an unknown person 
entered the Auto Technology Department and stole a 
paint gun valued around $400. No one has been 
charged with the crime. 

Between Jan. 1 7- 1 9, a student entered a room in 
the West Dorms and stole CDs, a DVD player and 
some clothing. The student was later caught after the 
video surveillance tapes were reviewed. 

On Feb. 21, between 4:30 and 5:00 a.m., a former 
student worker at Butler allegedly set fire to a Butler 
fleet van parked in the west parking lot near the 400 
Building which houses Facilities Management. Two 
other vans parked nearby were also completely 
destroyed, and another was hit by the blaze, but is 
repairable. The person was later arrested after alleged- 
ly setting a fire inside Wal-Mart and then attempting

to ignite a Dillon's Floral Delivery van. 

Ken Goering, instructor in the Auto Technology 
Department, and his students were affected by the 
theft of the paint gun last semester. That leaves only 
two paint guns for a class of around 15, and students 
must wait to use the tools. 

The theft happened over the period of a weekend 
and an in-service day. Goering says, "No one was 
here. Somebody either had a key or the door was left 
unlocked. In the past there were probably keys that 
didn't get turned back in. Other people have keys." 

Since the incident, Goering has taken his own 
steps to keep his expensive tools from being stolen. 
The locks have been changed on the doors, and now 
the paint guns are locked up as well. But for Goering, 
replacing the much-needed gun isn't easy. 

"Budget cuts make it 
hard to replace," he says. 
However, he is currently 
working with a company 
for donations for a new 
gun. 

All of these crimes 
were committed on the 
Butler of El Dorado cam- 
pus, where at least two 
security guards are on 
duty at all times. But 
they have a lot of ground 
to cover. 

There are several 




different areas of Facilities Management like security 
and technical, which handles the keys, vehicle fleet 
maintenance and all the signs around campus. The 
largest area consists of the custodians with around 25 
people filling those positions. 

Kay Rice, who has worked at Butler for ten years, 
is responsible for "around the clock security protec- 
tion and safety of the college facilities, personnel and 
students," according to the position description for 
her job as Supervisor of Security and Safety. 

Rice, as well as other security guards like Chuck 
Sommers and Roger Lowrance, check parking lots 
and buildings during sports and other college events. 
Lowrance says that it takes three hours to check the 
campus from end to end. 

Rice also escorts all officials to the locker room dur- 
ing half-time at basketball games. 

In the dorms, there is closed 
Icircuit TV that monitors and 
records action in the hallways. 
These images can be recorded on 
VHS tape or saved as a computer

Even with security on campus 
Ithere is still a chance for crimes, 
which means that we should be 
| aware of our own safety.

All About the Game 

Basketball Player Ashley Roberts Makes Butler Her Home 

Story by Mike Swan and Photos by Josh Gilmore 



Lady Grizzly Ashley Roberts came a long 
way to get to Butler County Community 
College and found her way to a stellar basket- 
ball career. 

The 5 foot, 6 inch sophomore point guard 
had a lot of playing time last season and now 
is asked to do even more things, leading a 
young squad. Even though the Grizzlies, 13- 
17 going into the playoffs, have struggled at 
times this season, Roberts has kept her head 
up, distributing the ball, playing tough defense 
and scoring. 

"I wanted to go to a good program and get 
away from home," Roberts says. She came 
here from Hernando, Miss. 

She's been on a basketball squad since 
making the team in seventh grade. 

"I tried out for cheerleading and didn't 
make it," she says. "I guess I was too shy. 
Then I concentrated on basketball." 

Of course, before and since then, "We 
always played." 

Her journey to Butler provided her with 
two firsts: a trip to Kansas and an airplane 
ride. She felt some homesickness at first, but 
soon made friends. After having only been in 
Georgia and Tennessee during her life, 
Kansas was quite a bit different. 

When pressed, she laughs, "I 
thought it was going to be like 'The 
Wizard of Oz.'" 

She had a good time, however, in 
large part because she got to play 

Roberts landed here and did quickly 
fit in, helping her team to a 20-game 
win steak last season, and the team fin- 
ished a very good 27-6. They advanced 
to the Region VI Final Four. However, 



six sophomores, including four starters, graduat- 
ed. 

This season, with only three sophomores on a 
roster of 12, it has been a learning experience. 

"Now (this season), I can lead," she points 
out. She enjoys the point guard position and 
"getting everything set." 

"I also like it because we play a fast tempo 
and a lot of defense, the same as high school." 

However, in high school, she says her team 
was able to freelance while at Butler "I now have 
to run a play. I'm used to it." 

She says the team gets along and helps each 
other out. 

"We push each other to get better," she says. 

Aspects of her game she is working on in 
practice include "working on my left hand, see- 
ing the floor, getting squared up (on her shot) 
and working on my three point shot." 

The sophomore also likes to get out and run 
and says she must remember to change the pace 
when it comes to the half court game. 

"I need to remember to go at half court 
speed," she says. "I need to slow it down. I go 
too fast." 




ON THE OFFENSIVE. Butler sophomore Ashley Roberts sets up the 
offense. She plays point guard but is also called on to pour in points.

There is also a lot of film study at this 
level, she adds. 

"If we have a bad game, we see more 
film. He'll (Coach Toby McCammon) 
rewind the tape if you make a mistake." 

Roberts' last home game against 
Hutchinson on Feb. 26 typified where her 
game is now. As the Grizzlies stayed in the 
contest, Roberts face-guarded the player 
she was assigned to at mid-court on an in- 
bounds play from underneath the basket. 
The Lady Blue Dragon had to actually 
reach over the top of Roberts' head to get 
the ball. 

Later, she helped tie the score at 14 with 
a steal and a long three-quarters court pass 
to freshman Megan Hallman for a layup. 

Soon after, Roberts hit her favorite shot, 
dribbling the length of the floor to pull up 
at the free throw line and drain a jumper. 

"I like to shoot from the free throw line, 
in the middle," she says. 

She then adds some words the coach 
must like to hear. 

"I'd rather play defense than offense. I 
like to frustrate someone." 

The team would go on to lose 46-40, in 
a season full of close defeats. 

She says most of the student crowd 
comes at halftime nowadays but she appre- 
ciates their support and that of the 
Boosters. 

"The Boosters are always here," she 
says. 

Roberts has not decided what she ulti- 
mately wants to major in, but gives this 
advice as far as schoolwork is concerned: 
"If you do what you gotta do, you will be 
O.K." 

(Editor's note: The women's team fin- 
ished the season 13-18. Earl Diddle has 
since been named as the new coach of the 
team.) 




Looking for a Shot. One of only three sopho- 
mores on this season 's Butler team, Bethany Kanak

Are Cell Phones Worth Our Time? 



Story by Anthony Carver 



"The basic concept of cellular phones 
began in 1 947 when researchers looked at 
crude mobile (car) phones and realized that by 
using small cells (range of service area) with 
frequency reuse (they) could increase the traf- 
fic capacity of mobile phones substantially; 
however, the technology to do it was nonexist- 
ent." (http : //inventors . about . com/1 ibrary/week- 
ly/aa070899.htm) 

Fast forward 56 years, and the technology 
is overabundant. There are children in grade 
schools that carry cell phones and pagers. 
There is probably not one classroom in this 
college that doesn't have a cell phone some- 
where in it when class meets. A day doesn't 
seem to go by without a cell phone ringing in 
the middle of some important event. On cam- 
pus there are teachers who ignore the rings, 
others who give stern looks to the students 
who inadvertently destroy concentration of 
classes and finally other teachers who have 
creative ways of dealing with the students. 
Karate teacher Spencer Rosebraugh enjoys 
answering the phones that interrupt the flow of 
class. 

"Most people don't like having their cell 
phones answered by other people; they like to 
keep their personal lives personal," 
Rosebraugh says. 

After one or two times of Rosebraugh 
answering phones in class there have not been 
any further phone interruptions. 

Fine Arts Director Greg May says, "Cell 
phones are the cigarettes of the 2 1 st century. 
Like cigarettes, at first it seemed sophisticated, 
then people became addicted to them and later 
we will probably find out that both cause can- 
cer." 

A worker at Cingular, one of the cell phone 
services offered in town, mentioned that 



roughly one-third of their business is from col- 
lege students. Cingular is only one of the cell 
phone companies in El Dorado. There are sev- 
eral others offered, plus the ones in Wichita. If 
the others' business is anything like Cingular's, 
then our campus as well as many others are 
flooded with cell phones. 

So why is it that so many students have cell 
phones? 

Here are two different reasons why a col- 
lege student would have a cell phone. There 
are definitely many more reasons. 

Jacqueline McKinley, a 20-year-old Holton 
freshman who lives in the dorms, says, "I have 
a cell phone because I want to talk to my 
mom, and people." She also made mention 
that it was cheaper than a landline. 

"I don't use it much really... I guess I use it 
more for when I have car trouble 'cause no one 
really calls me on it," says Jenny Fiegel, anoth- 
er 20-year-old freshman dorm resident from 
Wichita. 

"Most technology is sold to consumers to 
make their lives productive and easy, but in 
reality, technology always becomes a burden 
and obligation," says Greg May. "I remember 
talk of a four-day workweek because comput- 
ers would make us more productive. Instead, 
most organizations employ a small army to 
keep the computers working so that we will 
remain productive." 

Cell phones can make lives more conven- 
ient or they can become our own portable elec- 
tronic leash for the people who want or need to 
get ahold of you. For whatever reason, many 
of us spend the money, and now the time, on 
cell phones. The question still stands. Do the 
benefits outweigh the growing list of draw- 
backs? It's something cell phone owners are 
going to have to ask themselves.

Four BCCC students set 

out on a road trip 
2,000 miles from home. 



Souvenirs Courtney Wilson and Rhonda 
defer decide to sneak a few rocks from the 
Grand Canyon. We wanted to have sc mething 
to remember the trip by, not knowing that it 
was illegal to take rocks from a national park. 



f 



ifteen hours before I was to leave for Utah, for the Dixie 



Rotary Bowl football game held in St. George, I received a call 



telling me that I wouldn't be going and that the school could only 



send the radio staff from Butler to cover the game because the 



Booster bus trip was cancelled. I will admit. I was a little upset and 



angry at the fact since I had been waiting since last year to go. I 



went to work the next day and my friends, BreAnna Garland, 



Courtney Wilson and Danielle Schremmer and I decided to drive the 



20 hours it would take to make it to support and watch our football 



team play in the bowl game. 



So, on Thursday evening about 6 p.m., we decided to pack up and 



head to St. George. BreAnna packed three bags for the one night that 



we would be staying! One bag entirely for shoes. We would arrive 



on Friday evening and stay that night and then head back on Saturday 





night. After we crammed our luggage into the car, we took off 



on our long journey. BreAnna started out driving at about 9 p.m. 



We had one close call on the turnpike where a semi had hit the 



median, which was cement, and pushed it into our lane and we 



couldn't tell till we were right there. BreAnna's fast reflexes 



saved us, though. We switched drivers at about 4 a.m. on Friday 



morning and I took over driving. We could tell when we hit 



Texas because of that very strong cow smell, if you know what I 



mean. As the sun was coming up, we had just crossed the New 



Mexico state line. In the distance I could see something floating 



in the sky. As we got closer we noticed it was a hot air balloon race. 



There must have been more than 50 in the air! 



We stopped for a quick bite to eat for breakfast and then were on 



the road again. We still had more than ten hours to drive. At about 



one in the afternoon I switched with Danielle to drive. We went 



though Arizona and finally hit Utah. BreAnna took over in the 




mountains to drive because she gets carsick. By this time, we were Sleepy BreAnna Garland and Com

Then we took the scenic route and about ran out of gas. Luckily when we got out of the canyon 



there was a little worn down gas station, but it had gas so we filled up there and drove the rest of the 
way to St. George. We were all delirious bv then because we hadn't slept since Wednesday night and it 



was now Friday evening. We finally pulled into the Days Inn around five that evening and checked into 
our room. We all collapsed on the bed and thanked God we had gotten there safely. 



After we all took showers and ordered pizza, we hung out with the football team and wandered 



around the hotel. Drama between Danielle and BreAnna started and I seriously thought that someone 



was going to find another way home the next day. But, things got resolved. You know when you get 



four girls riding together for 21 hours straight in one car, there are going to be arguments and attitudes 



and believe me there was. As fast as we got mad at each other though, we were fine the next minute. 
We slept so good that night because we knew we would have another 2 1 hours to drive back the next 



day. 



All four of us slept in and then got ready to go to the game at noon. The team didn't play as well as 



they could of and lost, but it was still a great time being there to support them. We left St. George after

to pump themselves up. Although they didn '/ — 
win the game, it was still fun to watch and we 



were proud to see them make it that far.

the game. 




We stopped to grab a bite to eat on the way, changed out of our Butler gear and headed to Las Vegas. 



We got lost three times in Las Vegas, trying to find the strip, but we stopped to ask for directions and 
finally met up with some of the players and walked the strip. We watched the water show in front of the 



Bellagio Hotel saw Little Italy, went to the ESPN Sports Center, went into the casinos in New York, 
New York and looked around the MGM Hotel. There was so much to do, but we knew we needed to 




leave by 1 1 p.m. to make it back on Sunday night. 



So we took off around eleven that night and headed back to good old El Dorado, Kansas. We drove 



over the Hoover Dam and Danielle took over driving. We stopped in Kingman, Ariz, for awhile and got 



back on the road about three. About a half an hour into the drive, Danielle ran off the side of the road. 



She said she was all right, but then she went off an exit ramp and we knew she was no longer driving. I 



took over about four in the morning. We ran into snow and we all got our homework out because we all 



had finals the next day. BreAnna took over driving for me at about 1 p.m. I was exhausted! 



BreAnna was a trooper, though. She drove until eleven that night! We didn't have many more prob- 



lems except when Bre got followed by an officer not once, but twice. When we finally pulled into El 




Dorado, we were all pretty tired and glad to be home. We had driven 

more than 3,000 miles in less than three days. It was completely worth 

it though. We managed to cram in seeing the Hoover Dam, the city of 

Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon, and watching Butler's football team 

play into less than three day period. Even though there were fights 

along the way, long hours of driving and unexpected situations, we will 

always remember the spontaneous trip that we took in a last minute 

decision. f^( 



Smile! Danielle, BreAnna, Courtney Big Money! Adam Gourley, Courtney 
and I relax in front of the water show at Wilson and I in the New York, New York 



the Bellagio Hotel. The show was put on casino.
